1-the switch is bad, or not engaging properly
2-the power board is bad/ bad transformer
3-bad socket

get a portable lamp plug in socket and wiggle totest connection, if it stays on the socket is good otherwise call electrician.
leave printer on for a few minutes does it come on by itself witout you getting jiggy with it? bad board

if not the switch is most likely the problem

HP LaserJet 4L quit working It's connected to my PC and it's on. All 4 lights are on; 2 green and 2 orange. When I try to print, the paper goes through but nothing is printed on the paper.


Empty cartridge maybe?
Otherwise it's simple: selt-test page(by printer button) printed ok - it's outer problem. Self-page is blank - it's inner problem. And so on... use Golden Section method

Hp laserjet 3055 has error message on copying "50 fuser error, turn off then on". Restarting brings on the same message when copying.


The all-in-one has experienced an internal hardware error.

1. Turn off the power by using the power switch, and then wait at least 30 seconds.
2. If a surge protector is being used, remove it. Plug the all-in-one directly into the wall socket.
3. Check the cabling connections to the heating element.
4. Turn on the power and wait for the all-inone to initialize.
5. If, the error persists, replace the fuser.
NOTE The device power mustremain off for at least 20 minutes forthe fuser to cool down and correctly reset.
Turn off the power switch, wait at least 20 minutes, and then use the power switch to turn on the all-in-one and wait for it to initialize.

My HP Laserjet 4 will power up and print beautifully for about 5 minutes, then it shuts down - all lights go out, no fans working - nothing - dead! I have to turn the power switch off and wait several...


Have you powered-off the printer, unplugged the AC power, and used a can of compressed-air to give the printer a "blow-job" ?

A layer of dust will act as a layer of insulation, causing the printer to overheat, instead of "radiating" the heat.

HP LaserJet 4 will not power up. For several months, it has been taking longer and longer to power up. Flip the switch and nothing happens for minutes, then it cycles on. Now, nothing. No lights, no hum,...


Hello,

The AC Power supply in your printer is out. The laserjet 4 and 4+ printers would both have long power up times when the power supply would start to die. You can get a replacement power supply very cheap now since the printers are older. We have them in stock as pulls from parts printers that should work just fine for you. We sell them for $30 plus shipping. We also have service manuals available if you need one. Let me know if you need more help.

Unplug it for a minute or so. Make sure all the paper is out. Turn it back on. Macs usually have their own drivers. Did it come with a disk. Please rate me

Hp laserjet 4 plus printer, message window "Ready", off line button shows red


You can try to do a "Cold reset"

turn off the printer hold down  the Menu/reset button and turn it back on.

Do you hear the machine go into rotation? the 4 plus has a high pitch sound follwed by the fuser turning ( you'll know when it does it) if it doesn't go into rotation then there is another problem.
